Works for me as long as one understands the difference between the two.

Endogamy - marrying within a cultural or close-knit social group
Consanguinity - marriage or partnership with a close relative; the blood-relationship (cognatio naturalis), or the natural bond between persons descended from the same stock. ie. 1st cousins, uncle and niece, 2nd and 3rd cousins, etc.

consanguinity be sufficient?
